Understanding Respiratory Infections and How They Affect You
When you experience an upper respiratory tract infection, it involves an infection of one or multiple components of the respiratory tract. Typically, symptoms begin one to three days after exposure to the illness, and the infection lasts for about seven to ten days. Symptoms vary depending on severity and type of illness, but there are some to look out for. If you are experiencing a sore throat, coughing, a runny nose, breathing difficulty, sneezing, or nasal congestion, you could have an upper respiratory tract infection.
